    I have been working at Abbott Medical Optics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hard to think of any...

    Cons

    Management is corrupt! Employees who work hard are not recognized, while others seem to get promoted for no apparent reason. I still work at this awful place but can't wait to leave. We are under paid and under appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers that can actually manage and provide some guideance! We need managers who actually care and are motivated!

    Pros

    Some good people who really want to get the job done and produce a great product to the patients.

    Cons

    A lot of legacy people who do not want to change or are incapable of change. Poor decision making and lack of insight to rewarding the right people.

    Advice to Management

    Change the top layer and understand the problems and not white wash with new policy that is the flavor of the month.

    I have been working at Abbott Medical Optics (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The culture at Abbott is to treat everyone (except contractors) with respect. Manufacturing is not outsourced and is done on site. Nice office area.

    Cons

    Contractors are not treated with respect and endure a hazing period of 1-2 years before they are brought on as a perm employee. They are not included in training of any new processes but are expected to integrate these new changes into their job.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone with respect. Contractors don't enjoy being treated as a minority when you're promoting a team concept work enviroment.

    I have been working at Abbott Medical Optics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You cannot beat the benefits that abbott has. We get 3.5 weeks of PTO including all national holidays. The best part of of the PTO is that it resets every year so there's no accruing at all.

    The pay is very competitive and the managers (or at least my management) rewards good work. Feels good to have work rewarded.

    Work is very fulfilling in terms of creating innovative products.

    Work life balance is great. Management's expects to work as many hours as it takes to get stuff done.

    Huge opportunity to grow and get training

    Cons

    The work culture is a lot older and can feel like there's a lack of youthful energy. They tend to not hire too many younger employees as there is less turnover.

    Can feel very corporate like in terms of atmosphere, won't be getting any silicon Valley like perks.

    Advice to Management

    Seems like new management has the company going in the right direction. Theyre making it a priority to keep both their customers and employees happy! So keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Everyone is reasonable and easy to work with. I feel nearly everyone I've met in interested in solving problems, which is very helpful. There is a new division leader person who seems very engaged.

    Cons

    My work does not impact some of my goals. Most of the Cons would be true at any job.

    Too much herarquical changes in short period of time do not promote a secure work environment. Management by fear from few(not all) managerial positions. Good people will leave.

    Advice to Management

    Believe in your people . Attack the flaws in the systems not the people
